in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right

this mother's heart. last december, i wrote michelle obama a christmas card. just a mom to mom note to say thank you for caring. the first lady not only read my letter. she invited my husband and i to the white house. twass an amazing experience. but what's even more amazing is knowing that our commander in chief and first lady are thinking about families like mine every single day. so -- [applause] like i said, i'm not a political person, but i'm a mom. and if someone is there for my family and families like mine, then i'll be there for them. that's why i am so proud to introduce my fellow mom and our first lady michelle obama. >> thank you. thank you very much. with your help -- let me start. i want to start by thanking elaine. thank you so much. we are so grateful for your family's service and sacrifice. and we will always have your back. over the past few years as first lady, i have had the extraordinary privilege of traveling all across this country, and everywhere i've gone and the people i've met and the stories i've heard, i have seen the very best of the american spirit. i have se
on tuesday night you had michelle obama reintroduce the president as a husband and loving father. then you had big dawg bill clinton come out and present his record and then president obama came out and laid out his vision. i have one pundit correction to make. i predicted that john kerry giving a speech would be a mistake. i was totally wrong. he nailed it too and fulfilled his role as well. >> cenk: absolutely. senator kerry's speech was in some ways devastating. we'll get to that. and let me add what i got wrong. i didn't think the president would take on climate change, and he did. not a joke and it was great to see. nancy, they wanted to build on their lead with women voters. do you think they did a great job doing that? >> absolutely. they knocked it out of the park. after watching the last two weeks of the convention we know what this is about, it's the vagina stupid. this is another year of the women but with a twist. never have we seen this kind of--this issue this fundamental issue for women about our freedom to decide when and if we have kids the control over our bodies linked s
>>> tonight the main event here in charlotte. after powerful warm-ups from michelle obama. >> we must work like never before. >> and bill clinton, just last night. >> you must reelect president barack obama. >> tonight joe biden leads off and then the president makes his case for re-election. 3 f2 >> aquÍ estÁ brian williams. the primetime address by president obama and the beginning really of the final push, when americans wake up tomorrow morning, this election is suddenly 60 days away. now, as you know, the president's surrogates from the first lady to former president bill clinton have laid the groundwork for tonight and shortly we'll hear from vice president joe biden and then, of course, president barack obama. we were not supposed to be in here tonight. we were supposed to be across town in the football stadium. you see it there live, for what was supposed to be an outdoor celebration for upwards of 65,000 people, but the risk of rough weather was too great. it came through here late this afternoon. as of tonight, you can second guess this all evening. jim cantore, where
to support akin as a way to take back the senate from democrats. >>> michelle obama or president? don't bet on it. president obama and the first lady sat down with the ladies of "the view." the president was quick to shoot the idea of michelle obama running for president one day. >> she should run for office but she said she doesn't want to. >> yeah, i -- i -- look -- i mean, michelle would be terrific but temperamentally i don't think -- >> wait, no, it's absolutely true. it takes a lot of patience to be the president of the united states. and i'm not that patient. >> the first lady went on to say her husband was the perfect temperament to be president. no emotional shifts, very steady. she says she's one of the only people who can really make him mad. >> i'd be in such big trouble. i'm not sure he can get away with that. >> he just did. >> she agreed with him. >> i do not know what happened in the limo on the way home. that's a private moment. >>> the replacement refs, another controversy. russell wilson throws a hail mary pass. it appears to be intercepted by green bay safety m.d. jennin
tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol
fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our colleague and friend chris matthews. you said on opening night this week that democrats were having more fun than republicans. but that didn't necessarily mean that they were winning. the democrats have been ecstatic at previous conventions where they had gone on to lose. so how do you rate the democrats' happiness and their prospects? >> wow. you're hitting me with the toughest questions. there's two months left with a lot of economic news to come. we've got the unemployment rate coming out tomorrow morning. two m
for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
. michelle obama gave a very personal and good speech for her husband. president obama is will give a wonderful speech tonight he is very good. and at the end of the day this is what happen what matters. monday we have the announcement that gas prices doubled and we have the highest labor in the country. and we have the highest deficit. when the speeches are done tonight tomorrow we will get the jobs report and it will show 43 months in a row over 8% unemployment. 23 million americans are out of work. at the end of the day, the speakers are nice and this is a serious election in serious times. and it comes down to whether or not president obama's policies have worked and when you look at the numbers by any real measure you have to say they have not worked. >> so the campaign seemed to be painting two different visions of america. based on perhaps similar experiences that people have undergone over the last couple of years. the romney campaign says perhaps are you not better off than you were four years ago and the obama campaign is saying listen it is tough but we inherited a deep m
tonight. michelle obama saying he is the same guy you elected four years ago and he's been through a lot and he hasn't changed. the other thing i want to point out the most retweeted line of the night was, made in america. something that the republicans did not have in any of their speeches. this president is amazing. he consumes the room. he doesn't miss anything. and i think that he made a real point tonight talking about manufacturing, talking about american jobs and made in america, that got retweeted more. it was 52,000 tweets per minute, according to the gov.org people that were out there paying attention to that. that is a record, by the way. >> why we are on new miracle analysis. halfway through the speech we got the response from the romney/ryan campaign which proves it was written before they got the speech, which you can definitely tell because the first line of it is tonight president obama laid out the choice in this election, making the case for more of the same policies that have worked in the past four years. the statement is on your screen there. the whole point of the f
who on the other side -- michelle obama knows him as a man, this man the vice president knows him as a president like nobody else knows him. and i think he communicated that tonight. >> i think that -- i totally agree with you. i think that bridges to something that ed said which is important which is nobody needs joe biden to be introduced to them. joe biden has a familiarity as a politician who first ran for president what 1987? >> yeah. >> it was in the 80s. he's been around for a long time. he is a familiar figure. but i actually think part of this reassurance was at the best and one of his ad-libs. that didn't always work. that's when he had a lot of trouble stumbling over his words in some case. he did ad-lib at one point and said folks, i've watched him. he never waivers. he asks the same thing over and over again. how will this work for working families. and said that's what's inside this man. that is what makes this man tick. he's saying trust me, you trust me. i'm joe biden. you know who i am. and you trust my judgment. and i'm telling you this guy is the real deal. to h
taxful politicians were named ann and michelle. this is how i saw it when michelle obama first entered the arena. she took a look to see what it would look like from the stage. and two weeks ago, who would have thought that weather would threaten to completely disrupt these carefully laid plans. and of course it did. it canceled one night of the republican convention and forced the democratic convention inside. this is what topical isaac looked like from my hotel room. so as bill clinton said in 1988, in closing, if you need more proof that conventions still matter, they're still fun and are still fascinating, if you need more proof that you really can't touch this, i offer you this, mc hammer. see, conventions do matter. if you want to see more of these pictures, come visit our blog, cnn.com/earlystart. we have more pictures there. worth looking at. all right. moving back now, one of the most inspirational stories from this year's u.s. open, it isn't from a tennis player. it's from military vet who has overcome the oddsputee and is now a ball assist taptan to. an amazing story. go to

had a great speech and the night before, michelle obama. if you were listening what i call a fact challenged listener, switching between honey boo-boo and barack obama gee, that was a great speech. it was like a helium balloon. it was filled with a lot of lighter than reality air that made you float but there wasn't anything in the balloon. he was giving a whole litany of things he was going to do, if you couldn't do it now, why couldn't you do it on last four years. it was empty. people on the left were critiquing it that way. heather: not a lot of facts to back up a lot of language to talk about moving forward. >> to reach out and say i will create a million manufacturing jobs? really? go ahead. pull a rabbit out of your head. make mosquitoes where they don't bite. make it where a woman with a size 11-foot gets to wear a size five shoe. let's go ahead and do all the great things. but that is the problem with the speech last night. he didn't say, here's where we are, here's how we got there but here's how we're going to fix it and by the way i didn't do this way before because i
